Do not like the way this game is developing. Mistakes. Mistakes. Mistakes.

Ugh.

This should be a loss. No way we deserve to win this game. The defense has been putrid. The baserunning as well. And then our pansies come out of the bullpen and walk the first two batters in the 7th inning in a tie game. They should be tarred and feathered.

If they can get out of bases loaded with 0 outs with only giving up 2 runs, I think I'll take that.

2 runs won't win you many games. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Can't disagree with BB (above). Still, this has been a game that didn't need to be lost. Perhaps it will help teach them that to be a contender, you cannot screw up on the bases, make horrible throwing errors, and walk hitters in the late innings of a tie game.

Or leave 8 men on base, as McCutchen, Walker, Diaz, and Overbay have. Diaz, I never expect much from anyway, but McCutchen and Walker have not had a productive series: 3-for-20 with 5 strikeouts. Get it back in gear, gentlemen.

It happens. I will take the 2 out of 3 from the Sox and 4 out of 6 in interleague play.

Go get 'em Tuesday.

We just can't continue to run Diaz out there and worse yet, bat him at a key spot in the order. What has he done this year to deserve the #5 spot? Not a thing. Cut him.

The fact that he also brings no power to the table is really kind of mind-boggling.

Couldn't be more pround of this bucco club taking 2 out of 3 from the mighty 150 million dollar + payroll Sox.

Today was a product of what we're going to see until this club puts it all together. Defensive errors, baserunning blunders, not coming through with monster offensive innings when you have bases loaded with no one out, walks, unearned runs.

As good as this club is going to be they're going to have these kind of games while they grow and mature in a division winner.

I think Diaz has worn out his due as a Pittsburgh Pirate. Another free agent signing who just kind of came here and didn't perform up to what he was said to be. A right hander who could rake left handed pitching. It's never shown up. Get rid of him.

But, I wouldn't cut him just to open up a spot on the 25 man. Run him out there until the July deadline and see what you can get for him. There's going to be a contender, a little further along than the pirates, who needs a right handed bench guy.

I don't think there's a contender out there that would want Matt Diaz right now. I don't think any team would. All you hear is "he rakes against lefties" and yeah, he did. This year he hasn't raked against anything. Nor shown the slightest bit of pop in his bat. A hitter like him is near useless for any team.

I'm sure there's an independent league team looking to add his services...Maybe they could trade him for the Canseco Brothers!
